‘Actors have lived their characters in this movie’: Binnu Dhillon

There is no hiding to the fact that Smeep Kang’s ‘Vadhayiyaan Ji Vadhayiyaan’ is reaping benefits of a trailer which has given the audiences an indication of the movie being a barrel of laughter. The highest place benefit is the superabundant ballyhoo around the movie, something which all film makers tend to enjoy before the release of their movies.

The trailer of the movie was released almost two weeks ago on the official YouTube channel of White Hill Music. At the time of writing this article, it has received over six million views on the same platform. The movie is slated to release on July 13.

Binnu Dhillon and Kavita Kaushik, the lead pair in the movie, spoke to us in an interview and spilled the beans about their chemistry in the movie. The fun filled interview saw the duo talking about why they are confident about the movie doing well both critically and commercially, how each and every actor has lived his/her respective character in the movie and how everyone on the set was afraid of Kavita Kaushik. With Binnu Dhillon in the frame, joking around with people comes by default and so was the case throughout the interview.

Upon being asked about doing a romantic movie as a lead actor, Binnu Dhillon said, “Romance is just a small part of a full-on comedy named Vadhayiyaan Ji Vadhayiyaan. You will surely enjoy it. Having listened to the songs, you might have thought that this is a romantic movie. But it is more of a comedy movie. Songs are a necessity but even in the songs we have mostly performed bhangra.”

This leading pair was hitherto seen together in Ksshitij Chaudhary’s ‘Vekh Baraatan Challiyan’ last year. The success of the movie urged us to congratulate Dhillon for the same. On being asked about who deserved credit for the same, Dhillon replied in a humorous manner, “I don’t want to sound as self-admiring but it was obviously me.” However, once Kavita Kaushik was introduced into the scene, he made her and director Smeep Kang share equal credit in his archetype witty style.

If the interview was not about self-admiration, it was certainly about admiration for each other where the duo was seen going into ruptures about each other. “Kavita is a lucky charm for me. She is a fantastic artist. It is always nice to work with someone who has worked for so many years in Mumbai. As an actor, I take things lightly at times. But she performs every shot with equal dedication and honesty”, Dhillon was quoted.

Replying to the same, Kavita Kaushik said, “Binnu himself is a very hard-working actor. He is very aware of the script and dialogues on the set. During the shoot, if anyone forgets his part, he prompts him/her. I get amazed how he does it during a scene. His nature is that he believes in teamwork.”

On being asked the difference in portraying different linguistic characters, she replied, “Each character varies from one another. From the body language to the minutest of nuances, each one is different. As an artist, the real satisfaction lies in dwelling into (different linguistic) characters which are at odds with each other. As an actor, is is our primary job.”

On being asked about whether a mere six-week gap between ‘Carry On Jatta 2’ and Vadhayiyaan Ji Vadhayiyaan was a reason of concern for him, Dhillon answered, “There is no pressure as such. Carry On Jatta 2 was an exceptional movie. We have now made a habit of delivering hit movies to the audiences. The script of the movie is such that it is different from Carry On Jatta 2 which is the reason why I have co-produced the movie as well. Each one of us has lived our characters in it, which makes it all the more special.”

The interview comprised of other playful moments which will burst you into laughter. Watch the full video below:
